The Raptor seems well engineered, have to have a closer look at that one, also the tires look good...

The Camaro deserves a closer look too, do hope to see more detailed pics and info in the coming days..

Z-28. Yep.

 

Torino? You bet- I never had a chance to get one originally, and now....yeah, right.

 

As much as people are shocked by James' desire for the Z-28, I'll probably surprise as many by saying I actually kinda like the 2015 Mustang and would gladly buy one of the snappers because this effort MUST be supported, and more importantly, Revell's new snaps are really pretty nice.

 

The Camaro ZL-1? As long as the paint can be removed easily, sure. 

 

Raptor? Yuck. Make a normal F-150 and I'll bite.

 

And I still want a new-tool '57 Nomad and '56 Bel-Air Sport Coupe, with separate side trim to faciliatate building a 210.

 

(This list'll get at least one member of each faction's shorts in a knot, I guarantee it...)

Definetly the Blue Bandito when it is available. I've been trying to find a few parts for an original un built Blue Beetle for several years now. I hope they restore the Blue Beetle tool as original with the buckets, tonneau cover and Cadillac script valve covers.

 

A couple of '70 Torino's and the '67 Camaro also will be on the purchase list.

 

Revell has certainly been busy with the new tools.

 

I wish they would  take the 48 Ford tools and give us a 2 n 1 48 Ford coupe & sedan with a stock height roof. 

Give us the flathead speed parts, some wide whites with an extra pair of smaller whites for a big n little tire combo.

Make it a 3 in 1 by adding  some police/fire department accessories.

 

I would bet that a stock height roof kit would out sell the custom version they did. 

 

There are so many building possibilities with a stock height roof.

Yep. Facebook.

 

They changed the pic that had the glue R8. Now it is just a toy:/

I see that they have put the original bucket seats in the Blue Bandito. I hope they just omitted the tonneau cover in the picture but that it's included in the kit.

 

One other thought about the snap kits and simplified kits for the young builders.

It was mentioned that the snap kits are a big hit at the Goodguys/Revell Make and Take events.

But what happens afterwards ?

Do the kids stay with it or was it just something to do for an hour or so?

 

Perhaps Revell should include a discount coupon with the Make and Take kits so the kids would have an incentive to continue building.

I love Ford pickups. But, I'll have to pass on the half arsed effort on the Raptor.

No interest in any of the snap kits. Hopefully Revell will turn the Raptor and the '15 Mustang into full detail kits.

I'll probably get the drag LX. and convert it to a hatch back. I have the parts already together for it.  

I'm on the fence on the "Blue Bandito". I'll probably wait until it hits the clearance rack at HL.

The '70 Torino GT is a definite purchase.

The '67 Camaro looks promising. But, I won't hold my breath. The disappointment in the LX and '70 'Cuda is still lingering on my mind.

What was wrong with the Cuda? I thought it was the most accurate Cuda to date?

It's a shame, those minilites on the Camaro look like 13 inch wheels.....I sure hope they fix that.

 

 

I kinda like the "snappers" , except for the headlights, too toy like for me.

Snappers or not, I'm digging the Rapter & the new 'Stang. The Camaro too, both of 'em

The 67 Camaro is good news.  Hopefully the convertible body I make will work with it somehow.  The kit I have was only issued one time.

A question for you guys? I still want to know about the bucket seats in the Revell 1970 Torino GT kit. In the first release of this kit, the ProModeler version, it came with low back buckets with headrests. This style of bucket seat was correct for the '69 Torinos, but not the '70s. 1970 Torinos with bucket seats, came with high back buckets with built in headrests. Bench seats in '70 Torinos were low backs with headrests. But, not the buckets. My ProModeler Torino GT in this one area is glaringly wrong. I wonder if this has been, or will be corrected in later releases of this kit?

IIRC, this is the first reissue of the Torino GT version. IIRC, the Cobra version has the same seats and it's been reissued several times.  Missing Link has the correct style high back seats in resin.

Nice to see the 67 Camaro. As others have said, gotta wonder if anything will be shared with the 69 Camaro or the 68 Firebird. Wouldn't be surprised if everything for the 67 is cut as new tooling, but they base it on the masters from either of those previous tools (similar to the Rat roaster chassis/suspension replicating the previous deuce components)

Classic..."Beetle" is now "Bandito". Didn't Frito-Lay have some kind of TM on "Frito Bandito"? only they had the sense to drop that name because of racist connotations?

 

Yep I think they did. Way to go Revell! Born in the fifties for real.

Also real happy to see the Torino GT finally return - I missed that one the first time around. Kind of curious if they will include any photoetch in this one. I can see them trying to do the badging as decals, but I think the taillight mesh would either need to remain PE, or they would need to engrave the pattern right on the taillight panel itself. Never knew about the issue with the bucket seats, but I think I can look past that.

Taking a closer look at the announcement page on Revell's official web site, one can see pictures of the models much clearer. There is hope that Revell may have fixed the bucket seats in the upcoming Torino GT kit. Blowing up the picture on their web site it looks like high back buckets in the car!

Looks like the only money Revell got out of me this year was for the '70 Cuda... & Aoshima/Tamiya & Fujimi will continue to reel in my cash...

And, believe it or not, they're probably OK with that.  What makes you think they would want to jump into the same product mix as the Japanese 'Big Three'?
